Indeed. I really want him to run in 08, and he can only help himself and the party now if he intends to.
I love it!! "OPERATION SPREAD THE TRUTH"! PERFECT! :)
Yeah! Go get 'em, Mr. Vice President!
Wow..... Cheney is our guy after dubya that is.
My sister had the honor of seeing President Bush in person last summer. She called us to tell us all about it and I was GREEN with envy!
Let us hope that when the White House press corps demands President Bush disavow VP Cheney's " hateful and hurtful remarks "- McClellan doesn't fold and hem and haw his way to that end.
This should be beginning of Operation Verbal Bayonet to defeat the lies of the unpatriotic, anti American, military loathing , terrorist enabling Democrats.
"I had the pleasure of seeing President Bush in person, but I do hope to also have a chance to see our Beloved Vice President, sometime in the next 3 years."
In the 2004 campaign, I shook Cheney's hand!
As close to the top as I ever got or am likely to. I won't forget it.
My encouragement and appreciation has been conveyed to the proper WH agencies.
I'm over here, about to lose it. I was only four when we cut and ran from Nam. I will do what I can to honor your son's memory, and make sure that we do not do the same thing here in my lifetime. I SWEAR IT.
I saw him in October of last year in Greeley, CO on a campaign stop. It was sooooo awesome! An experience I will never forget.
Too bad my sons were too young to realize what they were seeing. But, we have pictures for future reference.
Did Bill Clinton "intentionally mislead the American people" by "dressing up the intel" just to launch Operation Desert Fox?
As one studies American history, one can often sense when the Almighty through reasons perhaps unknown in full, allows certain leaders to come into existence to lead this country.
I sense the current two have been groomed for this juncture in time with specific goals in mind by HE who created all those things shown in the picture you shared.
Harry Reid said that? I'm shocked and appalled! Not.
"Never in my life, have I seen the level of unpatriotism, and total lack of respect or manners, as the folks over there display every single day. Absolutely no, not even a semblance of, class. NONE!"
We're watching the natural progression of the worldwide organized hard left (WOHL). They are the heirs to the Communists, but communism per se has become secondary in their movement.
Nonetheless, emotionally and "spiritually" if such a word can be used--- they are the same as the Communists. To understand their "manners", think back on the behavior of Communists.
"As much as I disliked Clinton, I would never have thought of being that vile against the President of my country..."
Members of the WOHL are part of an army---but a new kind of army, a civilian army. Increasingly, they dispense with common courtesies and decency whenever they are an impediment to achieving their Leftist goals.
Furthermore, if ever President Bush feels the compassionate need to give Bill Clinton "something to do", remind him what side Clinton is on..please!
I love that poster! Go VP Cheney!
It's times like this that I truly wish Cheney were our President. He's so smart, smoothe and articulate. I can't help but think that if Cheney were President, he'd have put an end to this lying nonsense long ago. It never would have had the chance to grow ANY legs.
Sad to say but the Press Secretary down to the Bush Public Relations team has been woefully inept. If they don't get their acts together soon, the dems may just make a clean sweep of Congress next election. Maybe Bush will notice the value of Cheney's speeches and make some critical and overdue changes.
"Indeed. I really want him to run in 08, and he can only help himself and the party now if he intends to."
I believe Cheney is the greatest living American.
However, we have to face reality. He is very ill. He has given his all for his country, but I really think when Bush's term is over it will be his time to rest. Notice, he has always stated unambiguously that he would not run for President.
I am hoping that George Allen will work out.

If Cheney were healthy enough, yes. It seems to me that the President's recent problems are in part, a result of Cheney not been well enough to take a very active role.

Bush needs help, badly. He needs it soon. Some absolutely top-notch people must be found that Bush can have confidence in.
He is the only one who can finish the WOT....a dem could never do it.
You too, huh. I just think he's the greatest. What a man, and what a patriot.
There are days when I look at some of the lying, traitorous, whining, opportunistic elected representatives of this country and wonder if these people have any shred of patriotism or pride in America or Americans any more. And I wonder if the people who elect them have any pride in America.
But when I see and hear our wonderful VP, it reminds me that there are still politicians and statesmen in this country we can be proud to call our fellow Americans.
If the Dems don't reign this in, the SOTU address could be the political MOAB we have been waiting for.
I keep fantasizing that Bush is pulling a rope-a-dope on the Democrats and that soon there will be a bombastic press conference from a NEW Press Secretary about the CIA & FBI uncovering numerous democrat high level elected officials who are/were engaged in treason and bribery.
Frankly, unless we get news like that, I'm sickened and devastated that this administration will not defend itself and demand the truth be told in public discourse. This negative democrat & MSM drumbeat is being trumpeted around the world & it needs to STOP NOW!
My sister took along her young son but he's old enough that he'll NEVER forget the day he saw President Bush. President Bush was in Alaska this week and oh how I wish I could have seen him. He gave another EXCELLENT speech and the troops rejoiced.
"Frankly, unless we get news like that, I'm sickened and devastated that this administration will not defend itself and demand the truth be told in public discourse. This negative democrat & MSM drumbeat is being trumpeted around the world & it needs to STOP NOW!"
I agree. (by the way, I presume you know Weldon has been on Savage for hours.)
The way I see it, Bush way into some kind of euphoria after the election and lost touch with reality. then, when his fantasies didn't come through (such as Social Security reform), and then Katrina hit and everything, he seemed to go into some kind of psychological tailspin, along with ideological backpedaling.
He's getting better now, but the thing is, Bush needs some serious help running this country. I didn't see Cheney tonight, but I'm willing to bet, he compromised his health just a little bit to do what needed to be done. I really think he's doing that all the time now, whenever he's vigorous.
And consider this, Rumsfeld is like 77 years old. he's the one who made the Iraqi invasion work, when things fell apart, when Colin Powell stabbed us in the back, when we had one quarter of our army tied up and made unavailable in Turkey---Rumsfeld pushed it through. I believe he wanted to give way and let Wolfowitz takeover, but after Wolfowitz made so many mistakes, he just had to exit quietly.
I really think that Iraqi war took an awful lot of Rumsfeld. his performance was great, but 77 is still 77. I don't think his performance as the war has been great.
I think Cheney should focus his remeaning stretch on recruiting two or three really top people, for the inner White House team. Above all, they would need to be smart, truly conservative, and people Bush likes. Those things would be more important than experience to me.
Rumsfeld looked very very old and very very tired in his latest appearance. This week or last week. Can't remember the event.
Running the governement in these precarious times, when evil men wait in the shadows to do their backstabbing, takes its toll.
This was your son? I'm heartbroken to read about your loss. It angers me that we lose such fine men. And to lose them fighting against those that aren't worthy of human value angers me even more.
These are the barbarians at the gate. That we must lose even one fine man for a thousand of them still seems like such a cost. And yet it is.
There will be no words that will make your loss make sense. Only time. The widow that lost a husband at Normandy suffered a loss that no politic could fathom or explain.
But the people gained there, too. A grateful nation gained there. And those that do not have to stand a post, and do not have to stand on that wall, owe that debt of gratitude to those that did, those that submitted themselves to destiny.
But the Nation remembers. I remember. I do not forget the sacrifice.
Check out this short video clip (WMV). Bob Hope was a good man.
Damn, Dick. Clean their Commie Clocks. EVERY hour on the hour. This MUST not stop. Kick their ass, baby....
Thanks, I was trying to listen to what he said but couldn't hear him for us laughing over the pathetic look he had on his face.
If I am correct, I believe that it was President Bush who came out swinging before VP Dick Cheney did. :)
LOL!!! That's really funny! I have not seen that before. Thanks.
"Speak softly, but carry a big stick" sounds just about right. I know he was not one of us, but a damn good President never the less.
New Documents Reveal Saddam Hid WMD, Was Tied to Al Qaida

New Documents Reveal Saddam Hid WMD, Was Tied to Al Qaida
Recently discovered Iraqi documents now being translated by U.S. intelligence analysts indicate that Saddam Hussein's government made extensive plans to hide Iraq's weapons of mass destruction before the U.S. invasion in March 2003 - and had deep ties to al Qaida before the 9/11 attacks.
The explosive evidence was discovered among "millions of pages of documents" unearthed by the Iraq Survey Group weapons search team, reports the Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes.
In the magazine's Nov. 21 issue, Hayes reveals that the document cache now being examined contains "a thick stew of reports and findings from a variety of [Iraqi] intelligence agencies and military units."
Though the Pentagon has so far declined to make the bombshell papers public, Hayes managed to obtain a list of titles on the reports.
Topics headlined in the still embargoed Iraqi documents include:
Chemical Agent Purchase Orders (Dec. 2001)
Formulas and information about Iraq's Chemical Weapons Agents
Locations of Weapons/Ammunition Storage (with map)
Denial and Deception of WMD and Killing of POWs
Ricin research and improvement
Chemical Gear for Fedayeen Saddam
Memo from the [Iraqi Intelligence Service] to Hide Information from a U.N. Inspection team (1997)
Iraq Ministry of Defense Calls for Investigation into why documents related to WMD were found by UN inspection team
Correspondence between various Iraq organizations giving instructions to hide chemicals and equipment
Correspondence from [Iraqi Intelligence Service] to [the Military Industrial Commission] regarding information gathered by foreign intelligence satellites on WMD (Dec. 2002) Cleaning chemical suits and how to hide chemicals
[Iraqi Intelligence Service] plan of what to do during UNSCOM inspections (1996)
Still other reports suggest that Iraq's ties to al Qaida were far deeper than previously known, featuring headlines like:
Secret Meeting with Taliban Group Member and Iraqi Government (Nov. 2000)
Document from Uday Hussein regarding Taliban activity
Possible al Qaeda Terror Members in Iraq
Iraqi Effort to Cooperate with Saudi Opposition Groups and Individuals
Iraqi Intel report on Kurdish Activities: Mention of Kurdish Report on al Qaeda - reference to al Qaeda presence in Salman Pak
[Iraqi Intelligence Service] report on Taliban-Iraq Connections Claims
Money Transfers from Iraq to Afghanistan
While the document titles sound stunning enough to turn the Iraq war debate on its head, Hayes cautions that it's hard to know for certain until the full text is available.
It's possible, he writes, "that the 'Document from Uday Hussein regarding Taliban activity' was critical of one or another Taliban policies. But it's equally possible, given Uday's known role as a go-between for the Iraqi regime and al Qaeda, that something more nefarious was afoot."
"What was discussed at the 'Secret Meeting with Taliban Group Member and Iraqi Government' in November 2000? It could be something innocuous. Maybe not. But it would be nice to know more."
Hayes also notes that an additional treasure trove of evidence on Saddam Hussein's support for al Qaida may be lost forever.
"When David Kay ran the Iraq Survey Group searching for weapons of mass destruction, he instructed his team to ignore anything not directly related to the regime's WMD efforts," he reports.
"As a consequence, documents describing the regime's training and financing of terrorists were labeled 'No Intelligence Value' and often discarded, according to two sources."

I am thrilled beyond belief to see both President Bush and Vice President Cheney fight back. I don't think it's too late, it's just perfect. Our men and women in uniform do NOT deserve to hear politicians running around trying to rewrite history.
Just when I was becoming a bit down about everything, this has really energized me.
Same here. I hope W and the VP keep it up! And let members of their administration get out there and fight too.

I sure wish I could find this article on the NewsMax site - are you able to provide a link? I searched under various key words without any luck.
I agree, but don't forget LOYALTY. Not only does our President demand it, but whoever is recruited needs to be vetted carefully. Daddy Bush did prepare his son well for the slings and arrows of Washington, but like daddy Bush 41, his son (43), also gets a failing grade in the communication department.
Hopefully Cheney & Rove are sounding an alarm that Bush will finally take seriously and acknowledge. It is disgraceful that endless democrat lies and attacks have gone unanswered for months now and have resulted in horrible approval numbers for our President, and all while the world and our soldiers are watching.
